From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

4 stars State of the art; techno; clever; timely; designer led; competent; well tuned; fully toned; precisely aimed; carefully constructed; packaged; polished.

But also artisan; artful; dispassionate; unexciting; unremarkable; predictable; parody; pastiche; commercially driven; uninspired; routine.

Something of a tour de force in hitting a dead centre sales pitch, and still in many ways a fine product. Just that lack of a Syd, the missing x factor. The band do their best to make up for it by trying to imagine what Syd might have done had he been there, but it's not possible to mimic genius (or madness?). At this point, in some ways, Floyd become the victims of their own brilliant past, though they're laughing all the way to the brick wall where the bank machine waits.
